COVID-19: Global Growth Trends

Two observations worth making:

  • Ex-China data is exponential. The doubling rate remains at around 4 days since February 24th, prior to that, it was at 6-7 days, which indicates acceleration in the exponential trend.
  • With China data included, the trend is a bit more complex: we have exponential sub-trends of different steepness, with the first period through February 8th, followed by the step-function (on average still exponential) through February 17th, a linear sub-trend over 18th-24th of February and a new exponential trend since February 25th.

Post-February 25th trend is dominated by global infections, as opposed to China-based infections.

Currently, 17 countries have in excess of 100 confirmed cases:
